    • Vesna,
      I loved your writing because it is more complex than just finding a lens. I think this piece of writing has to be thought about way more to actually be able to connect to a lens simply because it has been thought about really well. This poem I think is all together a metaphor to something that can be simply said. This shows me how much you have pushed yourself as a writer.

    • Vesna, those three minutes I spent reading your lovely poem was the only right thing I did today. I liked how you used specific words like “the sky resembled a tangerine” where I could create my own illustration of your poem in my mind. This poem reminds me of the saying, “nothing lasts forever” where something can go right to terribly wrong in a matter of seconds. Keep writing Vesna, I look forward to reading them soon.

    • Dear vesna,
      I really liked how you put together this written piece. It almost makes me think about how there are many obstacle courses life decides to throw our way, but we continue to fight and make it out stronger, wiser, and smarter than before. I love how you use the connection of your feelings to the way the color of the sky changes to go along. It’s like the world knows what you are going through and is being empathetic. I hope you continue on with your journey and preserve to be a great person.

    • Dear Vesna,

      Damn.

    • Dear Vesna,
      This piece was very visual. As I continued to read I felt this story come alive, I was able to see the colors and tragedy you experienced. This piece was really dope, hope to see more of your work in the future. Never stop writing loser. You have the mic, don’t let it fade away.

    • Dear Vesna,
      Your piece is very interesting. I really enjoyed how you shared some of the ways you became more out going. I was very similar to you in the way that I didn’t express myself very well at all but as life went on I slowly got better at it even thought it’s still kind of a struggle at times. I look forward to seeing you post more of your creative work.

    • Hi Vesna,

      I had a pleasant time reading your comic because of the message you get across. By starting with a picture of someone working in the fields it instantly caught my eye. Then it was interesting to hear your moms story and how she’s a super mom for raising such great children! I was so happy at the end to find out that even if you were affected by something your mom experienced you were able to find your voice. I know you will use your voice make your mom very proud!

      Love,
      Stephanie

    You like the attention don’t you,

    Well that’s okay me to,

    But as of lately I’ve been thinking

    Maybe you should just be you,

    I mean I get it

    The attention and wanting to be cool,

    But I think

    "Why I'm Dumb as Hell"

    • I liked how you used this poem to speak truly about the type of person you are. You used some clear description that stood out while reading your poem.

    • dear vest. I like how yo u came out and talked about how your really felt this is a strong poem..

      sincerly, Octavio

    • Dear Vesna,

      I am surprised that you chose dumb, I don’t think that you are dumb, but I think I understand what you are trying to say. I think that you have more in you and everyone does the things that you mention in your poem. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “You like the attention don’t you, Well that’s okay me to, But as of lately I’ve been thinking Maybe you should just be you, I mean I get it The attention and wanting to be cool.” I think that this line of the poem means a lot because it explains how everyone fails to admit that they really like the attention that they get from people. You are very understanding when you say that you want it too because that is what everyone wants. You also realize that maybe being you is the best thing because people just try to get the attention to seem cool. Another sentence that I liked was, “Maybe it’s cause I pushed my friends away when things weren’t going so well at home, Why I’m dumb as hell, It’s because I didn’t realize till now my full potential when I let go and accept being alone.” I think that at this part of your poem you are realizing that maybe letting go of people is the best thing to do because maybe not everyone will be there for you at the end. You should always think about yourself first and you don’t always have to push people away or even if you do you can let them know. It is just something that should apply to everyone and the choices that they take. I agree that people should start being themselves instead of seeking for the unnecessary attention.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because these thoughts are very interesting and I’d like to see what you write next.

    • Dear Vesnito,
      I appreciate the fuck out of this poem. You spoke your mind and really felt engaging to read. I’m happy you chose “dumb” because as a reader I thought you were going to speak about “being dumb” but you switched it around and mentioned you’re actions being dumb instead. You are a great fucking writer and I know I shouldn’t be cussing but it just shows how much I LOVE this poem and all of your other pieces. Never stop writting!

    • Dear Vesna
      I like how you started writing with a good hook that made it catch my attention to your poem. I like how you were honest with this poem about yourself. you used good details in here that made your poem interesting to me. Good Job Mijo

    • Dear Vesna,

      I am really impressed to why you wrote about yourself being “Dumb”. I personally will take the sides of you not been dumb but rather to being goofy. I know that you are a very friendly, goofy, and smart person. I do believe that you have more in you than what people think. Knowing you seems like you don’t have to be dumb to be a really cool dude, I already think you are cool enough for everyone. A line that stood out to me was the following… “Maybe you should just be you, I mean I get it. The attention and wanting to be cool. But I think you lost sight of it all And started acting a fool”. I found this line very cool and creative because you are trying to explain that when you want to be cool, you might just act like a fool so that you can be cool. This is a very cool to explain to people when they think they are cool. I know you are cool, but a cool dude without making a fool out of himself. I think that you have a very creative way of writing things in your own ways and that is a skill that very few people have. So keep up the good work that I’ve seen you done and that will get you to where you want to be.

    • Dear Vesna Sot ALMIGHTY BULL,
      I like how you have two different names. Each of them defines a whole different person. The nickname bull sounds tough and dangerous, yet you go on to say that you portray yourself as an introvert. Very cool, never knew your nickname was Vesna.

    • Dear Vesna,
      I really enjoyed reading, “Two Wolves” I can now understand why it is titled that way. Having a name and nickname that have different identities for you. Your name Bull shows more of how you like putting things aside when you are tired. Vesna brings more of your outgoing personality that you have.

    • Dear Vensa,

      I was really intrigued in reading your memoir. I found it very interesting that you have a nickname Bull and it was a nickname since you were little. I also have a nickname so I can relate kinda with you. One sentence that I really liked from your memoir is “As an individual, I believe that my names are two conflicting identities that reflect who I am as a person”. I feel like that’s so true that people with nicknames have two identities but it also reflects how the person is. Another sentence that I really liked was “This along with treating others with respect and accepting my own bad habits such as procrastination is the version of me I truly identify as”. I also procrasted a lot and I do also think respecting others is major key. I’m looking forward on what you write next!

      Sincerely, Jennifer

    • Do “Vesna” and “Bull” have to battle? I would like to hear more about where you were heading in your final paragraph… How can you bring these powerful personalities together to help you and those around you?
